One pastor began the year with twenty-one days of prayer and fasting. To seek solitude for their prayer time, the congregation would hike off to the bush every morning and return home at night. When they returned home one evening, there was much commotion at the church. A member’s baby had died and she brought the dead baby to the church. Surrounded by mourners and the grieving family, the pastor intervened by picking up the dead baby and began to pray for her. After 30 minutes of prayer she began to cough.

In open air services God healed two children. A mother brought her three year old to be prayed for.  She was so sick and close to death. She was in a coma, unresponsive and her eyes were rolled back in her head. After prayer she began to cry and talk to her mother, wanting to go home as she was hungry and wanted something to eat. Truly God did a great thing for little Rose. Another mother brought her seven year old son for prayer, he could not walk, he was crippled and unable to talk. In a few minutes he was smiling and walking normally around the service, as people marvelled and worshiped God.
